I used to think people with bum chins ate children
my dad told me that eskimos would get run over in the antartic because they couln't see out of their hoods properly.
When I was little, I believed that you grew to be old by choice. By old, I mean, you decided you wanted to be about 28.
At age 15, or so, when you looked perfect (what was I thinking?), you'd have to decide whether you wanted to look good or whether you wanted to drive, vote, have a cool job, etc.
I decided that most people made the decision to get to do all of those things, not knowing how bad it would really get. Like they didn't figure that wrinkles, moles, excessive (read: any) body hair and breath that smelled like beer, garlic and cigarettes would ever be part of the equation.
I spent a good bit of time when I was 7 or so feeling sorry for all the grownups that I knew that they had made that decision. I knew all the people on TV were smart, because they knew not to make that decision. On TV, women had babies and THEIR boobies didn't get all floppy and THEY didn't turn into monsters!
Go figure. I grew up to be a monster! ;-)
I used to believe all nice button up shirts were called blouses until I was in a crowd (of all places) and told my male cousin that I liked his blouse. Everyone laughed and my cousin said boys don't wear blouses.
When I was about 3 years old, I thought that if you had long hair, you were a girl and if you had short hair, you were a boy. My mom told me that I was a girl numerous times, but since I had short hair, I just said "I'm not a girl, I'm a boy!"
When I was two my family gave me a Chinese hat. They hoped it would tether me to my Chinese roots. It did, and I wore the hat everwhere -- until my aunt told me (well, she never actually said this, but this is what I morbidly interpreted) that a monster lived in the hat and was just waiting for the right moment to cave in my skull and eat my brain. I never wore it again, and my family didn't know why until a couple years ago.
I used to think if you dressed like the popular people uyou would be popular. So one day I wore an outfit that the most popular girl in school had worn a day before. I walked up to her and said,"Hi. I don't no if you noticed but im wearing the same outfit as you did yesterday," She said"Yeah but I found out yesterday that that outfit was worn my a teacher earlier in the year!" i asked the teacher if I could call my mom for a change of clothes!
I when I was a alittle kid I believed that my appearence was that of a lion. I used to growl at bugs and things...I was astounded to a small boy looking at me through the mirrior....when I as my mom who he was she just shook her head in disgust...
I used to think that the difference between a skirt and a dress was the hemline - a skirt was short and a dress was long. I didn't learn the truth until my girlfriend explained it to me at the age of 21.
when i was younger i used to always make weird faces at my sisters and cousins(e.i crossing my eyes, etc.) and my parents used to tell me that if i kept making faces that it would stay like that forever.
When I was 5 my older sister told me that I used to be bigger than her, but they put me through the wash and I shrunk. Of course, I believed her... it made sense at the time...
When I was 10 i believed that you had another person who looked like you on the other parts of the world.
i used to think that freckles were when god got bored and he decided to draw on your face!
When I was about 7 I was a tomboy and wanted to be a boy. Another little boy my age told me that he could change me into a boy. I believed him and we spent an hour preforming a ritual to make me into a real boy.
When we were in kindergarten, my friends and I believed that if we crossed our eyes and stuck out our tounge, and someone slapped us really hard in the back, that our faces would get stuck that way! Sometimes, we would play tricks on eachother and wack eachother in the back while we were crossing our eyes. When our faces didn't get stuck like that, we thought that our guardian angels were watching over us and that they made sure that our faces didn't turn ugly!!
My mom told me not to do certain things like "make faces" or it would freeze like that. I thought that is where mannequins come from. Adults & kids who had just froze like that because they were doing things they weren't supposed to do.
Once, in fourth grade, I looked in the bathroom mirror and noticed several small, hardly-visible black dots on my upper lip. I got scared and thought I was growing a beard. Then, I figured outthat they were actually blackheads.
When I was little I tucked my shirt into my underwear instead of into my pants. One day someone told me never to do that and I was convinced that I would catch on fire if I did it again. Later I found out that it just made my underwear show at the top of my pants.
this is from my moms childhood. when my moms youngest sister was able to understand more things, they (my mom and her other sisters) told her that when she was born, there parents didn't have enough money to raise her, so they froze her body. then told her that that was the reason why she was the only one with blonde hair and blue eyes.
